But as for you, brothers, do not grow weary of doing good. If anyone does not obey our message in this letter, take special note of him and do not associate with him, so that he may be put to shame. Yet do not consider him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother. (TLV) – II Thessalonians 3:13-15
Nosh: Throughout Scripture it is clear that God’s correction is not to be viewed as persecution but as a hopeful, merciful process leading to restoration, maturity and blessing.
